How to celebrate New Year's Eve twice in one night

The luxury will only cost you £151,000

New Year’s Eve divides people: some see it as the best party night of the year, whereas others consider it an overhyped and overpriced anticlimax.

If you're in the former camp, however, what if there was a way of ringing in the New Year twice in one night?

Well, if you’re rich enough, it's possible - all you have to do is hire a private jet and you could be celebrating the end of 2016 in two of the best party cities in the world.

Your long night will start in Sydney - kick things off at 8pm and party on into the wee hours.

Don’t stay too long though because you need to be on a flight to Los Angeles at 2am.

Of course, your average budget airline isn’t going to be enough here - you’ll be travelling in style on the world’s fastest private jet, the Gulfstream G650ER.

It’s the only plane fast enough to overtake time, with a top speed of Mach 0.9, just below the speed of sound.

Flight time from Sydney eastwards to LA is 12 hours, but LA is 19 hours behind Sydney so by crossing the International Date Line you’ll be able to gain seven hours of crucial party time.

With the luxury of a private jet you can skip all the usual queuing, checks and waiting in an airport and walk right onto the plane.

If you start the night at Sydney Harbour, it’s just seven and a half miles to Sydney Kingsford Smith airport so you’ll be able to party until at least 1am before having to leave.

What’s more, the plane accommodates up to 18 people so you needn’t stop celebrating really - just take the party to new heights. As one would expect on one’s private jet, fine wines, champagne and bespoke catering is all available.

Or if you’d rather rest and refresh, the plane has double beds and a luxury shower too.

You’ll arrive in LA at about 7pm, just as the celebrations are kicking off once more.

Sounds fun, right? And if you have a spare £151,000, what is perhaps the ultimate New Year’s Eve could be yours.

If you have the stamina - and savings - why not fly back in time and see in 2017 twice?
